Starting a Business Against the Odds

By August 8, 2017 No Comments

For those of you who don’t know, Mark and I decided to start Synergy in 2008, during one of the worst financial downturns in this nation’s history. Perfect time to start a business right?

How Did We Start a Remodeling Company in Reston During the Recession?

While we had the passion and the drive to go out on our own, we needed the professional know how and advice of an experienced entrepreneur—that’s where we came across SCORE Mentors, and our personal mentor, Fred Glave. With the help of Fred, we were able to successfully launch Synergy…and nine years later, we couldn’t be any happier. SCORE gave us the support we needed to get to where we are today, allowing us to take a simple idea, and develop it into one of the top remodeling companies in Reston.

I want to take a moment to say thank you to Fred—not only was he instrumental in helping us create and implement our business plan, but he has been there every step of the way.

If you’re passionate about becoming an entrepreneur, or have an idea you just can’t seem to shake (don’t worry, I’ve been there), then SCORE might just be the resource you are looking for. Below, you can learn more about our personal journey, and how we created our Reston remodeling company from the ground up.
